Hayes penalty wins Munster Senior Cup treble for Young Munster

Young Munster 27 Nenagh Ormond 24

By Tom Clancy at Thomond Park

Young Munster sealed a hat-trick of Munster Senior Cup titles, and 10 in all, following a come-from-behind win over a gallant Nenagh Ormond.

Despite the Cookies holding fourth spot in Division 1A of the AIL, their Tipperary opponents matched them for so much of this enthralling tie.

Nenagh led 17-10 at half time, and made it 24-10 from the kick off and the shock was on.

Munsters still trailed by the same score with 70 played but with a penalty try and a try from sub James Horrigan. The Hayes conversion tied it up.

Then, after Nenagh hit the post, Hayes nailed a touchline penalty with the very last kick to seal an historic victory.
